Nokia announced last week that it is providing the 7220 Interconnect Router (IXR) for data center switching platforms and SR Linux, its network operating system (NOS), to OpenColo, a global colocation provider. .
The deployment of the Nokia solution gives OpenColo the scalable data center switching it needs to support its growing colocation and hosting operations to support future 5G, IA and IoT services.
Nokia’s data center switching solution includes SR Linux, an open Linux-based NOS, and a NetOps development toolkit that automates data center network operations to improve operational efficiency while reducing costs. risks. Services supported by OpenColo using the Nokia data center switching solution include bare metal and managed servers, cloud streaming and data center connectivity. OpenColo also uses the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) to interconnect its data centers using dual fiber optic connections operating at 100 Gbps.
OpenColo also installed the Nokia 7750 Service Router (SR), based on Nokia FP4 silicon, to provide IP routing in and between its data centers, including peering and interconnection to multiple service providers.
